You don’t need a prepared jar of spices to make a dish evoke the same savory, seedy bite of an everything bagel; a few pantry ingredients can do the job! When preparing the shallots for this side dish, be sure to cook them until they are well-browned. This will ensure that their rich oniony flavor permeates through to the squash.


  1. Put 1 large halved and seeded spaghetti squash in a bowl with 2 tablespoons water. Cover and microwave until tender, about 15 minutes; scrape into strands. Brown 2 sliced shallots in a skillet with butter and olive oil, 4 to 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Add 3 sliced garlic cloves and cook 1 minute. Add the squash and cook 2 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds and 2 teaspoons poppy seeds; season with salt.
